Has Xhaka found a way back? 0

Posted on January 22, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal produced a rather remarkable comeback from two goals and a man down to snatch a point at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea on Tuesday. It makes a change most welcome to what we’ve been seeing lately – too often the Gunners were the ones to throw away leads and drop points from winning positions.

Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, now the team captain, had just started serving his three-match ban after picking up a direct red card against Crystal Palace, when up pops a whole new problem of the same sort.

On whether he has any complaints about the red card:
If I have?

On whether it was double jeopardy:
I don’t know. I watched it from different angles and from different angles it looked different. They made a decision and we have to accept it.

While Arsenal didn’t quite manage to come away with all three points against Chelsea, there’s still a bizarre sense of renewed optimism within the Emirates in the wake of the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge last night. They need to start turning these points into wins, but as Arteta has stated, there are reasons to be proud of this team as we look ahead to the future.

On what he learned about his team from the previous Chelsea game:
It’s different from then to now. I loved the first 30 to 35 minutes and the way we went about it. How aggressive we were, how much we wanted to attack them and put them under pressure – it’s the kind of way that we wanted to play. After that, we had a little bit of a setback. They changed the system and we found it a little bit more difficult to deal with that. We started to defend deep without really conceding anything, and had some great opportunities on the break as well. I think physically for us in that moment it was harder for us to maintain the same amount of energy. Against Chelsea, that’s vital.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta knows and understands this game, and one of the biggest things to understand with a club like Arsenal is that you simply cannot afford to go on a bad run of form for too long – or it could spell trouble. In their upcoming clash against Chelsea tonight, there’s a very good chance that their top four hopes could be all but finished – and we aren’t even out of January yet.

Atletico Madrid looking at Lacazette? 0

Posted on January 20, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

According to Sky Sports, Atletico Madrid are considering a swoop for Alexandre Lacazette.

The Spanish club have been without the services of Diego Costa for quite a while now, and the former Chelsea striker is set to be out for further two months. His injury has effectively left head coach Diego Simeone with Alvaro Morata as the only option for the position furthest up the pitch, and he plans to counter the problem by dipping into the transfer market this month.

A look at Arsenal’s next six games – part 2 0

Burnley (A) – Premier League

Away game number three in a row will take place at Turf Moor when Arsenal take on a rejuvenated Burnley side. This is exactly the sort of game that they’ve been struggling with away from home in the last few years, and we think they’re going to struggle again here. Burnley are no pushovers as they were able to prove in their recent clash with Leicester, and they aren’t going to lie down for anyone. We’re predicting a draw, which seems to be Arteta’s favourite kind of result right now.

Newcastle (H) – Premier League

While it hasn’t quite been a baptism of fire for Mikel Arteta during the early stages of his stint as Arsenal manager, he’s certainly had mixed results as he tries to navigate a route towards the top four. Alternatively, the Europa League and FA Cup serve as opportunities for some silverware, with all three targets leading Arteta towards one thing: success, in some form.

Today, we want to look ahead as opposed to looking behind at what has been. The boss needs to be able to change things up and find new angles for the Gunners to exploit, and when you take one look at what the schedule is like over the next few weeks, it isn’t exactly hard to see why.

Arteta reacts to Sheffield United draw – part 2 0

Posted on January 19, 2020 by Harry Kettle

On whether he thinks we should have had a penalty:
I think it’s very clear.

On whether he’s spoken to the referee about it:
No.

On Gabriel Martinelli stepping up:
Absolutely. He’s an 18-year-old kid with all the enthusiasm but as well, he’s so brave to make decisions, to threaten the opponent every time. He’s all the time in the middle of the goal, waiting for an opportunity to come. The fact he hasn’t played 90 minutes for a while – since his injury – but is still in the way he went about every single action is impressive.

Arteta reacts to Sheffield United draw – part 1 0

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media in a game that felt very ‘lather, rinse, repeat’ as the Gunners drew 1-1 with Sheffield United. They had the lead for a long time before the Blades were able to bite back with an equaliser, and it was clear to see and hear the disappointment from Arteta as the attention now turns towards the Chelsea clash.

On how frustrating the result is:
I’m very disappointed today. I think the performance deserved three points and I think we lost two points. In the Premier League, if you don’t put the game to bed then in the last 10 or 15 minutes this type of team just need a long ball, a second ball, a set-piece, and you can give the points away. That’s it.
